He confessed, “It was comforting to see people who weren’t interested in me or even didn’t like me cheering for me. It was powerful enough to make me cry. It felt like I wasn’t fighting alone.”

Regarding the donation of 5 billion won, he shared, “One thing I want to say is that all donations are good. However, this donation was a little different. That money is really precious to me. To say that it is blood-like money is too clichéd.”

Lee Seung Gi explained, “It’s money that contains all the stress, pain and despair of my youth. So I wanted to spend it without loss. I wanted to donate it to a place where I could see clearly how the money was being spent.”

He expressed his feelings, “It was great. I felt like I became a very cool person.”
